Nutrition Tip #6
Eating too much salt can cause high blood pressure. Adults should consume 1500mg sodium per day,
this is less than ¾ of a teaspoon of salt. Tips to limit sodium (salt): do not have the salt shaker at the table;
limit pickled, cured, smoked or processed foods. Cook with little or no salt and season your foods with
herbs and spices.
Health insurance companies generally provide coverage for nutrition counselling. Check with your private insurance
